Abstract

Aluminium alloy materials found to the best alternative with its unique capacity of designing the materials to give required properties. Aluminium alloy Metal Matrix Composites are gaining wide spread acceptance for automobile, industrial, and aerospace applications because of their low density, high strength and good structural rigidity. In this study metal matrix composite is fabricated through stir casting method. Titanium Oxide (TiO2) is used as reinforcement for the present study. The Metal Matrix Composite is prepared with varying the TiO2 volume fraction ranging from 2% to 8%. Metal Matrix Composite is fabricated successfully through stir casting method and found that the mechanical properties of fabricated metal matrix composite materials like tensile strength, hardness and impact strength of the metal matrix material found by using different experimental methods. The experimental results show that the tensile strength of the metal matrix composites is increasing with volume fraction of Titanium Oxide. Similarly, hardness and impact strength of Metal Matrix Composite are increasing with volume fraction of Titanium Oxide.
